JCLT presents Peter and the Starcatcher

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan).

 

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk on board, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Directed by Harrison Lamb
